The Maison Carrée has been standing in the same spot, in various states of grandeur, for 2020 years. I love this stuff, it's one of my favourite things about travel. To walk in the same spaces and see the same things that people who lived 2000 years before I enjoyed my first beer is a joy that never gets old.
Nîmes, in southern France, was once a Roman colony and I spent just two days there recently, enjoying the ancient monuments of the city and nearby. More posts to come from Nîmes with the Pont du Gard and the amphitheatre.
